Rickerman Tuning

So me and my buddy finished the install on my MAP EF3 today. With my full mod list as follows :

AMS Front Mount
AMS Upper Intercooler Pipe
AMS Downpipe
AMS Test Pipe
Agency Power Cat Back
Cobb SF Intake
Grimmspeed 3Port
DW1000cc Injectors
DW65c Pump
MAP Short Runner Manifold
MAP EF3 Turbo

So after long contemplating on who I should carry my car to for tuning, I decided to go with the Almighty Chet Rickerman. As he said, after the install of the turbo, mani, injectors, and pump, my car wouldn't crank. Me knowing absolutely nothing about tuning and barely knowing how to get myself to EvoXForums operating a computer, He answers my phone call and talks me through everything step by step on how to and what to log and send to him. I'm sure he was probably face palming plenty with the idiotic and dumb questions I had since I'm so dumb with with tuning and any type of ECU software.

I just thought I'd make this thread so I can post up my results from beginning to end of this journey ahead and review for Chet. So far, so good though. It's just great how you can call or text with any type of question and he there almost any time of the day to help. But tomorrow i'll really start doing some logging once my wideband is soldered in.

Updates will be posted frequently.

Congratulations!

You have a great car.
We studied hardeware solution chosen and I noticed injectors DW 1000, which are actually slightly higher in reality.
DW1000cc Injectors - I have left a bitter taste but hopefully they'll work well for you.
When possible, besides classical dyno chart with power and torque, also please to display AFR.

+10 For Chet, He was very helpful in answering practically instantly a ton of questions via phone/email/text as HDGamer and I were setting up his wideband failsafe, trying to do some logging on both of our cars and also correctly diagnosed that my fuel pump had failed based on symptoms I described to him over the phone.

Yea, it's going great so far. Just getting the injectors dialed in right now though. I'm having issues getting my wideband to record though. I soldered it in (because I followed the steps in the thread for it), still having some issues though. Im sure Chet's gonna be able to help me out and get everything right though.
